Breasts that are excessively large in size may be disproportionate to the body or cause back pain and discomfort. Dr. DiBernardo can correct this with breast reduction surgery. Women who reside in Essex, Morristown, Bloomfield and the surrounding areas are invited to contact New Jersey Plastic Surgery® to schedule a consultation.
Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that can be used to decrease the size of your breasts by removing tissue and skin and reshaping them to have a smaller, more proportionate size. Breast reduction surgery may also reduce the size of the areola. Women who undergo this surgery often find that they have a more proportionate silhouette and a more appealing contour.
Women who suffer from back pain or bad posture from having oversized breasts can alleviate their discomfort with breast reduction surgery. It can also be beneficial in boosting self-esteem, self-confidence and can save you from experiencing awkwardness or pain when shopping for clothes or participating in certain physical activities. Reducing the size of your breasts may also improve your breathing and help you feel more comfortable in your own skin. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and an anchor-shaped incision is created around the areola and down the folds at the base of the breast. Once all the necessary glandular tissue, excess fat, and skin are removed or trimmed away, the incision is sealed using stitches. However, in cases that only require fat to be removed, liposuction may be used as a less invasive technique.
